Product Description

The No. 7 Bayonet was a bayonet primarily used with the Sten Mk V submachine gun. However, it could be used on the  No4 Lee Enfield but only for ceremonial purposes as the bayonet obstructed the path of the 303 round fired from the gun. 

The No. 7 bayonet was an advanced design that could be configured as either a blade or socket-type bayonet, and could also be used as a fighting knife. It was intended to replace the No4 Bayonet in service and used the blade of the No5 Bayonet.
